    This impressive white-ground kilim is a weaving of the Hotamis Turkmen of the Konya region. It is woven in one piece, so unlike the two-panel kilims of this group there is no misalignment of the design along the central axis. Three huge hexagons, their hooked arms extending far to the sides, take up the full length and width of the field. This powerful motif appears to have been a specific tribal design of the Hotamis Turkmen, although a slightly modified version was also used by the Aydinli Yürük. Whereas the first and third hexagons show blue hooked outlines, the outlines are red in the central hexagon. – The border and elem section at the bottom right is incomplete. Minor holes. Mounted onto canvas.

    This rare small-format kilim, its red field undecorated except for a few diamonds brocaded onto the ground, was made by Anatolian nomads in the province of Manisa. It is woven on white cotton warps, as is a kilim from the Vok Collection comparable in palette and style, but far larger in size which Hirsch attributes to the Ivrinde Yürük. The shield-shaped outline of the open field is created by the indigo spandrels outlined in sharply contrasting white cotton as well as four lateral merlons notched at the top. The kilim was woven without lateral borders. Bands of narrow, polychrome horizontal stripes are seen at both ends. – Major missing sections. Mounted onto canvas.

    Half of a two-panel white-ground Konya kilim. Very large, nested hexagonal medallions are aligned on the central axis; their hooked outlines in diverse colours dominate the overall appearance. The spaces along the sides are densely filled with secondary motifs, and small, scattered protective symbols have been added in the brocading technique. The high degree of patination of the soft light colours and the vigorous style of drawing are indications of an 18th century date. – Several missing sections, incomplete sides and ends. Mounted onto canvas.

    Woven in a single piece without lateral borders, this small-format kilim was probably made in one of the villages of the Çal region. It may have been used as a sofreh (eating cloth) or as a blanket on which cooked wheat (bulgur) was spread to dry. Woven from light brown, undyed camel wool, the ground is shot with fine, dark brown stripes in many places, effectively creating a grain like a wooden surface. The eye is caught by a large, nested, serrated diamond standing alone at the centre of the empty midsection of the field. Three design bands containing simple stepped forms and flanked by narrow brocaded guard stripes form horizontal bars at both ends of the kilim, emphasising the effect of the solitary central motif. – Several major missing sections, damaged sides and end finishes. Mounted onto canvas.

    An early kilim of the Sivrihisar group woven in a single piece in mellow, beautifully patinated colours. As in the example published by Petsopoulos, the primary designs are box-shaped and decorated with parmakli comb motifs at both ends. – Incomplete sides, major missing sections, one end reduced. Mounted onto canvas.

    Originally in two panels, this fragment of a kilim was woven in the Nigde region in the southern part of Cappadocia. The surviving section of one half of the field displays two huge devices composed of pairs of double hooks with curled ends which flank a hexagonal centre and alternate with two large hexagons enclosing parmakli motifs. The powerful impact of the drawing and outstanding quality of the colours suggest an early date. The tribal group who produced this kilim is uncertain. Kilims showing similar, but usually smaller primary motifs formally closer to X-shapes are attributed to the Aydinli tribes of Central Anatolia. – Various holes, incomplete sides and ends. Mounted onto canvas.

    Woven in a long and narrow format without borders, this white-ground kilim belongs to a renowned group that is well-documented in literature. The white field is divided into four horizontal panels, each dominated by a huge serrated diamond. This powerful device consists of five nested diamonds which form concentric colour rings around a small central motif. Due to its similarity in shape to a particular Turkish pastry, the serrated diamond is also known as the "baklava" motif. Small additional designs have been included in the lateral sections of each panel, and white- or orange-ground horizontal stripes decorated with vines and stylised flowers divide the panels. – Corroded light brown sections, several missing areas. Mounted onto canvas.

    Probably a weaving of the Karakecili tribe, this single-panel kilim from the Kütahya region displays an impressively powerful composition of large-scale designs drawn in a bold and simple style. A wide horizontal design bar and a bar of hexagons running beneath it combine into a massive cross motif, dividing the open, blood-red field into four segments of equal size. The inner sides of the field are decorated with blue parmakli designs. The elems are each composed of three horizontal design bands, one containing star-filled hexagons and two, reciprocal hooks; their size and the distinctive style of their drawing are striking features. – Major rewoven sections in the field, partially restored sides and corners.

    In this very rare kilim, the emptiness of the open sand-coloured field is emphasised by five widely spaced, red hexagons. A sixth hexagon has now been lost due to the missing corner at the bottom left. The border has merely been suggested by parallel, brown horizontal bars. Distinctly minimalist in appearance and mysterious as regards its purpose, this village kilim was probably woven in the area between Aksaray, Nevsehir and Nigde. – Several holes, both ends incomplete, missing lower left-hand corner, damaged sides. Mounted onto canvas.

    Woven in one piece, this village kilim was made in the hinterland of the coastal town of Fethiye, known as Megri until 1914. It was used as an eating cloth during celebrations. The spectacular effect of the red, completely empty field, with sharp stepped points in changing shades of green protruding into it from the sides, is further enhanced by the wide striped elems. In the red and green sections of the field, the variations in colour caused by the aging process (abrashing) have created a subtle basic design of undulating lines which enlivens the monochrome spaces and makes them appear transparent. – Signs of age and wear; the sides and corner sections are incomplete in places.
